Buttonwillow 13CW - wet track 12.01.2012

Been 7 weeks since last track day. Too long!

It rained during previous evening and early mornings, so the track was damp when we got there. Didn't dry up 'til a bit before noon.

First time tracking on a wet track, had a blast!

Chasing you down early afternoon

Here's me chasing OC3 down in the first session after lunch.
Took some hard work but finally caught up...

Had a great time as well driving and socializing with everyone.

Did you try off line to find more grip in the wet

For a wet track, just turn the head light washers around to face the front!

The new xpipe and muffler helps make it even better... Fabspeed HFC with resonator + Dinan muffler. I really like it

Sounds absolutely epic! I hope my Dinan midpipe/exhaust combo sounds as good at the track this Spring.

How were you able to capture the audio so clearly?

Here is a post detailing my setup:
http://www.m3post.com/forums/showpos...3&postcount=36

The short answer is that I use a Audio Technica ATR-3350 omnidirectional microphone (only ~$20) that I run from my rear bumper all the way to my GoPro Hero2 in my front bumper. It captures the exhaust sound quite well

It would be nice to run that mic into the audio system to hear the exhaust better. I was trying to do that with a wireless setup but I couldn't find a cheap transmitter and receiver kit.
The audio would be the real deal as opposed to synthesized.

That is some nice driving ti-Jean

Your car sounds amazing. I am running the same audio recording set-up as you and can confirm that your exhaust set-up sound delicious .

Is it me, or you seem to be short shifting a lot? Any reason why?

Good catch... simply a bad habit from the summer. I had lots of overheating issue during the summer and had to short shift to avoid overheating. My previous 2 track days at that track, I had overheating issues. I really didn't have to short shift that day since temperature was pretty cold, I guess muscle memory took over.
